Annual Holiday Lighting on the Waltham Common

Event Date: 
Saturday, November 25, 2023 - 4:00pm

Following the Santa Parade around Waltham, please join us on the Waltham Common for the City’s Annual Holiday Lighting! This year’s event will be held on Saturday, November 25th. 

The festivities will begin ~4:00pm, with Waltham Show Choir getting everyone in the holiday spirit performing some holiday classics! Hot cocoa will be available as well.

After the Waltham Common is lit up (~5:00pm), there will be a special appearance by Santa! Parents make sure to bring your cameras to take your child’s photo with Santa outside in the gazebo!

Santa’s Mailbox (Provided by the Waltham Women’s Club) will also be set up on the Common for children to leave their letters to Santa during the holiday season. Deadline to submit letters is Monday, December 19th, to ensure a response from Santa before Christmas. (Be sure to leave a return address on each child’s letter).
